No news

sadly, we haven't heard the pitter patter of little snow feet yet. Mr S and his wife were aging badly today. however the snow is back on - looks like its on for the night. So there may well be some offspring by tomorrow - fingers crossed.

my wonderful new sugar nellies arrived from Funkykits today - the 4 new spring themed stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell, see a few posts down, and 2 Hamish's. Have sat down this afternoon and stamped 4 of each, so that I now have a wee stock to colour. Have been trying to find some Memento inkpads and not been having much luck. I ended up ordering 3 to stock up from Calico Crafts, but you know me - no bloody patience, so I've been phoning round local craft shops (not that there's a huge selection round here) with no luck either. I'm told by Poppet that this is the best ink to use when colouring the images with promarkers. 

Before I go, I just want to tell you about a good friend of mine and Mar's. Her name is Manda and she is a lovely, bouncy vivacious person. I've only actually met Manda in the flesh twice, but I talk to her almost every day on messenger. Manda works for Signpost a charity that offers information and support to families of children with additional needs and I work quite closely with her because of our work at ESP. Anyway, the reason I'm telling you all about her is because she has newly started her first blog so I'd like you to drop by and give her some words of encouragement. Manda is really keen to start crafting and I'm putting some bits and bobs together for her to get her started.
